Дуже корисна книга для тих, хто розуміє, що з транспортом в наших містах щось не так. Автор дуже переконливо і чітко розтавить по місцях все, що роїться у вашому мозку. Чому не так, як цьому запобігти, як це виправити і якими засобами можна спробувати зробити місто, в якому ви живете, зручним та комфортним.

Very important information for everyone. Not particularly well written, but though-provoking
Took me two years to finish this book (had to wrap up grad school somewhere in between) but this is a must-have at any planner/policy makers desk.
